    The news lied, and I am glad they were wrong. (FOX ten o'clock news had it 40 people dead) The number best I can tell isn't forty people, but unfortunatley still three... In particular, one of the dead was a 17 year veteran of the police force.. RIP..

    Any time people die, it's a tragedy.

    But let's at least get our numbers straight and not spread fear, paranoia and misinformation.

    3 dead. Tragic, but much fewer than 40.

    I believed what I heard, and I was wrong..I checked two other news outlets and revised the post.

    I haven't even heard this one on our domestic news. I hope it hasn't got to the point where three dead isn't "newsworthy".
